Knocking over bumps

Hello all ,
Getting a knocking from the rear of my Bugeye when going over bumps , suspect the drop links , so thinking of changing them front and back , are there any to steer clear of or any that are THE ones to get .
All advice greatly appreciated .

Re: Knocking over bumps

Firstly whiteline droplinks are about 50 for rear and are what i put on mine to replace knocking ones. But and this is the BUT its common for rear shox knocking on these as i found out on mine. whats the mileage on the car as this can be a good indicator if this may be the case, just something to check before buying wrong bits thats all.

Ah !!! Right ok !!!!

Had the rear tyres changed today so had a good look at the links , the rubber looks offset and perished and I could move them by hand quite easily ????

Re: Knocking over bumps

As above just make sure it the droplinks and bushes and not the shocks causing the probs
